The 'Guide to Cloned Glycosyltransferases' has been revised and is now also 
served from a US mirror site. In the UK, the guide is served from: 

Revisions include:
- file split into three parts
- new section giving a selection of prokaryotic glycosyltransferases
- new section on proteins required for GPI biosynthesis
- new section on sulphotransferases (stretching the term glycosyltransferase!)
- some new Swissprot and EMBL database entries added in other sections
- two database URLs pointing to the wrong protein corrected!
- mirror site at: http://wolf.gsu.edu/TGN/Iain_Wilson/glycosyltransferase.html

Many thanks to Laura Morris at Georgia State University for setting up this 

Note: that at present both the US and UK addresses serve files with links to 
the EMBL database at the European Bioinformatics Institute in the UK 
(http://www.ebi.ac.uk/) as well as the Expasy server in Switzerland for 
Swissprot entries (http://expasy.hcuge.ch/). Sometime I will change the EMBL 
database links in the US version to point to the NCBI server 
(http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/). If anyone in Japan or Australia would like to 
mirror the Glycosyltransferase Guide on the WWW, please get in contact with 

PLEASE keep on sending corrections and additions. 

If your sequence of a glycosyltransferase is not included, let me know the 
journal reference and Genbank/EMBL/DDBJ accession number. 

Also new references to add to the Glycosyltransferase Bibliography would be 

Finally: If anyone out there thinks it is time to get a list together of 
glycosyltransferases that lack EC enzyme numbers, then perhaps a group of 
us should discuss this.
